Brea, CA (May 21, 2020) – M4 ECSTAR Suzuki is excited to finally kick-off the delayed 2020 MotoAmerica 
Season next weekend at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Toni Elias will spearhead Suzuki’s new 
premier Superbike team alongside teammate and 2019 MotoAmerica Supersport Champion Bobby Fong 
aboard their Suzuki GSX-R1000’s. Suzuki GSX-R600 riders Sean Dylan Kelly and Lucas Silva will contest 
the Supersport class while 2019 MotoAmerica Twins Cup Champion, Alex Dumas, takes on the Stock 1000 
class in hopes to grab a back-to-back championship.
Spanish superstar, Elias will be entering his fifth season racing in the MotoAmerica Superbike Series, and 
has already established himself as one of the series’ all-time greats. With the 2017 MotoAmerica Superbike 
Championship under his belt, followed by impressive runner-up finishes in 2018 and 2019, Elias is eager to 
keep performing at the same level, win races, and regain the 2020 championship.

Teammate Fong earned the promotion to Superbike duty with his breakout 2019 season, in which he locked 
up the Supersport crown a round early through an epic campaign that included winning six times and finishing 
second 14 times. The Californian further rounded out his game with improved consistency and race craft, 
and looks forward to the new challenge of racing the premier class aboard his Suzuki GSX-R1000, and with 
a crew that has helped him physically and mentally prepare for the heightened competition.

Kelly is fresh off a breakthrough first MotoAmerica season and is determined to again be a strong contender 
in Supersport. The 18-year-old racked up seven podium finishes in 2019, including a spectacular double 
victory at Pittsburgh International Race Complex.

Teammate and rising star, Silva will compete alongside Kelly, building off his impressive season in 2019 with 
10 top-10’s and an 11th overall finish.

Two-time MotoAmerica National Champion Dumas will contest in the 2020 MotoAmerica Stock 1000 
Championship on a Suzuki GSX-R1000. In 2019, Dumas became the MotoAmerica Twins Cup Champion with 
five wins out of 11 races, and proved he has what it takes to compete at a higher-level in hopes to stack up 
more podiums and another championship victory.

M4 ECSTAR Suzuki will debut its full team and race livery at the first round of the 2020 MotoAmerica 
Championship series on May 29th at Road America. The action-packed weekend will be airing live on FOX 
Sports and MAVTV, and streaming live on MotoAmerica Live+ both Saturday and Sunday of the races.
